  • Let’s Cook: Onion Kakiage Tempura
  • Kakiage is a kind of tempura usually made with thinly cut vegetables that are deep fried with tempura batter. It is a popular side dish and topping in Japan and can be served alongside classic Japanese dishes such as donburi, soba, and udon. Onion and carrots are usually used in Kakiage tempura, but you can use any vegetables. Burdock and lotus roots are also great choices too. In this recipe, we’ll show you how the humble onion can be transformed into something crispy and delicious.
